As serious as John is about photography, we both know that “shooting” birds has not been his strong suit. He says, “the little buggers just won’t stay still”!
We recently went to the Riparian Preserve at Gilbert Water Ranch in Gilbert, Arizona for a walk, a bit of fresh spring Arizona air, and yet another try at photographing birds. As it turns out, he may be making some progress after all.
His focus for the day was the Snowy White Egret. It can be majestic and powerful in flight while also fragile and elegant. With a long zoom lens and a fast shutter speed he shot away.
What a day!
These were all taken from quite a distance (at least 100 yards). He was quite happy about these and shots of a couple of other creatures.
Like the Turtles —
and, the little bunnies hiding from pedestrians.
But the stars were the Snowy White Egrets, and their spring dancing.
See you on tthe road,
Bev & John
